No Booze for 6 Months? A Revolting Resolution

the-scream.jpgWe've received some unfortunate news here at the Liquor Snob offices. We're not sure how to put it, so we'll just spit it out...it seems our Editor in Chief and Grand High Muckety Muck has developed an allergy to alcohol*. Well, not alcohol so much as the yeasts and sugars used to make it. Turns out the red face and Irish Flu really were caused by his WC Fields lifestyle - just not for the reason he thought.

He's been told by his doctor that he has a chance to get over it, but he has to stay off the sauce for six months. We'll repeat that - Mr. Liquor Snob himself can't drink for half of 2008. He put off his abstinence until after New Year's, his personal national holiday, but now he's committed to the idea.

Not that you have to worry - while he has to get used to things like mornings and finding out what orange juice tastes like without vodka, the interns here will continue to grind out great content about their favorite pastime, and make sure you get your daily shot.

Please feel free to shout out with any advice, catcalls, or mocktail recipes in the comments below, and we'll keep you posted on his willpower.

* Apparently, allergies can be caused by repeated exposure to the allergen. Big shocker, eh?
